The Monique Lhuillier Meltdown

Brad dishes on the stress of nearly missing the Monique Lhullier show.

Thank you for watching Season 2 of It's a Brad, Brad World! As you can see, a lot has changed since last season: business is booming and I have two new styling assistants, Thomas and Hannah. Lindsay is now the Queen Bee of my business! Absolutely everyone and everything goes through her. She has become more than an assistant; she is part of my family. Thomas is the first assistant I ever used when I went out on my own, but at the time I couldn’t hire him full time and he was looking for full time work. The minute I was able to hire him, I gave him a call and he accepted the position. It's been almost two years. Hannah started out as an intern. She had no experience in fashion, but she was willing to learn and absorbed everything very quickly. She has a great eye, an incredible sense of style, and she makes me laugh, so once we started getting really busy, I hired her full time. I love my team! They work really hard and we have fun doing it...most of the time.

I feel so lucky to get to work with Kate Spade New York as their brand stylist. One of my responsibilities is styling their presentations for New York Fashion week. My first job is to edit down the racks and racks of product to pull out the pieces I feel are the strongest and work together to communicate the inspiration and the story of the collection that Deborah Lloyd, the Creative Director of Kate Spade New York, has come up with. For three days, Deborah and I work very closely to put the looks together, fit them on the models, and put the finishing touches on them. We discuss what the hair, makeup, and nails will be and do a test to make sure it is the look we want. Then we decide where the models will be positioned based on which outfits we feel are the most important or have the most impact. All of the top editors are invited to come see the collection with the hope that they will see outfits and accessories that they will want to feature in photo shoots in their magazines. This particular collection was a big hit with editors. It has been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, and Elle, which says to me that we did a great job.



Working with Minka Kelly has been an absolute joy. It was so much fun getting to fit her for the Jenny Packham show. We tried on about eight dresses and ultimately decided on the red dress that Minka was not sure about at first, but she trusts me, so she went with it. Jenny seemed to be the most excited about this dress too, and you ALWAYS want the designer to be happy with your selection. Just as I suspected, the dress was a huge hit. The photographers went crazy when Minka walked out on to the runway, and she ended up on many best dressed lists. YAY!Getting to the Monique Lhuillier show was more stressful than putting thirty looks together for the Kate Spade New York presentation. I have never been stuck in worse traffic, and Gary and I were freaking out so hard. At one point, we hit a curb and went up on the side walk. We both felt bad for the driver, because he made a bad decision that almost cost us making the show. Monique and her team were so sweet to hold the show for us. It was nuts once we got there, because everyone was already seated so there was no way to go except down the runway. It was so next level! I have always wanted to walk down the runway at Lincoln Center, and I finally got my chance.
Life is great! I can't complain. Gary and I are doing amazing! I can't wait to show you what we’ve been up to...there are some BIG changes, BIG drama, and BIG fashion! Hashtag, hashtag!

Sheer Terror with Coco Rocha

Brad dishes on his minor panic attack during Coco's fitting.

Let me start off by saying I love my new house so much! We have now been living in it for almost six months, and every day I pinch myself to see if it is real. I have been busy decorating with the help of our friend and interior designer, Sal Messina. The house is really starting to take shape and we are so happy here! Penelope especially!



I have been a big fan of Coco Rocha’s for many, many years. I have seen her walk in runway shows, pose like no other in photo shoots, and naturally follow her every move on Twitter and Instagram. When I got the call the she needed some help selecting her look for the premiere of her TV show The Face, I pretty much jumped up and down. I wanted her to have THE best choices to choose from, and I kid you not, when we were pulling we couldn't believe how many things were sheer, but we thought that would be right up Coco's alley. Boy was I wrong! I usually have a good gauge for what people are going to love, so when she said she didn't wear anything sheer, I almost passed out. One thing I have learned in this industry is that you cannot be part of the problem, you have to be part of the solution. So I presented all of the options that I thought were the strongest and went from there. We ended up finding options not only for her premiere, but also for press appearances.She stunned on the night of the premiere! It was a really amazing red carpet moment! Not to mention I have been doing A, E, I, O, U since we filmed in November, and it has changed my life! It was an absolute honor working with Coco. I adore her!


As if that wasn't enough excitement for this gay Canadian boy, I got a call from Noot Seear who is also Canadian, also a top model, and also an actress. She has launched an amazing line of headphones called FRENDS! They are fashion meeting function at its finest! She wanted the shoot to look high fashion, but also look like her, so it was a fine balance to match all of those things together. I wanted to show different styles to reflect the different types of women who would be wearing the headphones, so we had the bohemian girl, the indie girl, glamour girl, rocker girl, and girlie girl. It’s so fun to work with new clients and see their reaction to what you have pulled for them and want to see them in. Noot was so incredibly happy with the job we did, and the shots turned out AMAZING! It was a pleasure working with her and I wish her tons of success with her headphones!So much Canadian love! Can you handle it?

On next week’s episode of Brad World, we go to Dubai! It's NEXT LEVEL!
